Bombay Sapphire was responsible for this visual feat, and not, just in case you were wondering, by just providing enough gin to create a power station-shaped gin hallucination.

The drinks brand commissioned production company Drive and creative agency RKCR/Y&R to create a projection mapping piece for Battersea Power Station, inspired by the idea of rejuvenating the unused space. Drive created the giant 70m2 installation with 14 projections stacked in hides on towers 60m from the power station. You can watch the result below.
